Nothing in the cinema this month (going to the cinema is expensive!). I did watch a couple of animated movies this month:
- Dragonball Super: Broly. I have some vague recollection of watching the original Broly movie, and I believe this one is much better. DBS Broly is a slightly more nuanced character than just “random raging monster” from the previous non-canon movie. The animation was okay, you could tell the animators were having fun with some of the battle parts. Also, I watched the English dub, and I just realized Goku’s voice is super annoying, so I pity the Americans who had to grow up with that voice.
- Justice League vs the Fatal Five. I’m still a bit behind on the DC animated stuff. I liked this one because I think it handled Jessica Cruz fairly well, and it got me backreading Justice League Odyssey for more Cruz.
TV-wise, since I got a new video card and have a second monitor again, side-watching is back on the menu, so I was able to catch up with some of the ongoing series: Modern Family (meh), Simpsons (meh), Rick and Morty (ok so far, only 3 eps in).
I caught Season 3 of The Toys That Made Us on Netflix. Not as fun as S2 for me since that one had Transformers, and I only have secondary interest at best in the toylines for S4, but some of the stories here were pretty interesting, like they say that the giant robot from Japanese Spider-Man was the one that inspired sentai robots! What! The TMNT ep was also pretty good.
Arrowverse is still going on (somehow), with their upcoming big-deal Crisis crossover kicking off in mid December. Surprisingly, Arrow itself has been pretty good this season (perhaps because no Felicity? lol), followed by Flash, with Supergirl dead last. I am not fond of Lena’s heel turn in Supergirl, I felt like it was a disservice to the character who when introduced was desperate to get out of her brother’s shadow. I haven’t been watching Batwoman, even though it’s part of the crossover, we’ll see what happens.
I managed to watch the first ep of Mandalorian, but haven’t had time yet for the most recent eps. It’s not the sort of thing I’d side-watch, so I have to dedicate time for it. I better do that before the spoilers catch up with me!
Next month I’m looking forward to:
- Crisis on Infinite Earths
- Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker
